Eyes Of Laura Mars (1978) ***

Neat flick.
Directed by Irvin Kershner (The Empire Strikes Back) and based on a story/screenplay co-written by John Carpenter.
Carpenter is drawing heavily from his love of Giallo here, to the point that if this was filmed in Italy, it would be a Giallo.
If this were directed by an Italian, it feels like it would have been Fulci and not Argento, one of Carpenter's most named-dropped influences, except with more gore.
